France president Emmanuel Macron declares his backing for Chelsea star for Ballon d’Or.

According to ESPN, French president Emmanuel Macron has lined up Chelsea starlet N’Golo Kante to win the Ballon d’Or.

The president is among the latest high-profile personality to voice their backing for the diminutive midfielder to win the prestigious honor.

The 30-year-old Frenchman has enjoyed a heavenly 2020/21 campaign. Be it under Frank Lampard or his successor Thomas Tuchel, Kante has been a key member of the Chelsea team.

He has put in some celestial displays, especially, towards the end of the term, playing an essential role in the Blues’ success.

Indeed, Kante put in Man of the Match performances in the Champions League semi-finals against Real Madrid, in both legs. He then absolutely controlled the Manchester City midfield in the finals of the main event in Porto, with another MOTM display.


As Kante prepare to do it all over again, this time for France in the Euros, president Emmanuel Macron uttered in support of Kante getting the Ballon d’Or.

The French president said:
“N’Golo Kante is a great player, like Kylian Mbappe and he is an example. He is an example for the youth of the country. When we see again the season Kante has had with his club, and I hope the Ballon d’Or too and I’m sure what he will do in this Euros.

“Him and Kylian are good people too, with values of effort and togetherness. They are loyal to the clubs where they come from. And I think it is very important for the country because sport is always bigger than just sport.”

The French president interacted with the French team ahead of their EURO 2020 campaign much like he did in 2018.

Before Macron, Kante’s compatriot Paul Pogba also spoke about Kante winning the award. A strong showing with France in the upcoming Euros would well and positively put Kante as the favorite for the Ballon d’Or.
